NYC: The Brooklyn Bridge

Discussion in 'Landscapes, Architecture, and Cityscapes' started by Dez Santana, Jul 2, 2008.

  1. I met up with Shaun, of DPR, and his new D3 to snap the supposed "waterfalls art" in Lower Manhattan at night. These were taken with the D300 & 12-24mm, 17-55mm and 70-200mm f/2.8 (thanks Shaun). ISO 200.

    Not bad for an "obsolete" camera, j/k :eek:

  2. Great series Dez, even with a so called "obsolete" camera. If your is obsolete, then what are mine, ancient? Any-who, the first two of the set are beautiful. Of the 2, I like the first one and it is not b/c of it being b&w but rather the bridge is isolated more and it pops better in your shot (maybe b/c of its orientation, portrait rather than landscape). Well done on all your shots and thanks for sharing.

    God Bless,
  3. These pictures are sweet. Good framing and the colors at night pop like fireworks.
  4. Thanks David and Tiny!

    You don't like the color shots?
  11. I have always like the Brooklyn Bridge in B&W. The first photo is my favorite.
  12. Thanks Bill :D 
  13. I like the color shots as well--particularly the second image in the series. But, the B&W ones are my favorite overall.

    Nice work!
